There is no god.
Religion is on a par with homeopathy, astrology and wearing crocs.
You nutters can believe this garbage if you want but excuse me if I laugh at it and call it garbage and resist your attempts to indoctrinate children in your fantasy.
I don't expect religious people to admit that their lives are a lie but without proof they can all bog off
I'm fed up with being even-handed and fair to these lying kiddiefiddlers.
How about we tackle this evil where it flourishes? How about we lift the taxable exemption for all churches and charge them as if they were at the full corporate rate?
They are in the business of "souls" which don't exist so how about we make these fuckers pay for their delusions?
Civilisation will dump the idea of gods sooner than some people realise and in the corporeal world we will be left with some buildings on some nice real estate that could be turned into something useful.
A childcare centre or playground would make more sense - how about instead of talking to your invisible friend in the sky which doesn't exist you do some good on the face of this earth?
I would turn that logic around a bit. Act have shown themselves to be so loopy and swivel-eyed for the last, well, decade that their leader has to work harder to convince the voting public of NZ that he can actually be rational rather than Randian
Pasport pilferers, perk buster porkers and individuals who didn't come down the river in the last (banana?cabbage? I forget) boat have demonstrated that ACT have been consistently more irrational than rational. Or at least more criminal.
Given that, why on earth should we take anything they say seriously?
Sacha, you have been fortunate.
the sort of shit that a lot of men say when no women are present can be eye-wateringly misogynist. Their primary defense is usually "I was only joking" to which I say "but it's what you choose to joke about"
I can roughly tag openly racist talk being cut to the Satchi "racists have smaller brains" billboard campaign, that was about the time that these guys clicked that it was no longer acceptable.
It seems to me that misogyny is still in that pre-change phase but the boys onsite have learned that if they try that kind of crap on around me then they'll get the shittiest job I can think of for the rest of the day.
Would you like to post that venison and quince recipe perchance?
I have some aged venison in the freezer that needs to be treated right
Has anyone else noticed the penchant for new stars to take up stage names?
Lorde/Thomston/Lawrence of Arabia/M83/St Vincent
Is this a thing?
You all may have your reasons for not/voting for National but when John Key used the word "learnings" twice in one recent soundbite that cemented the deal for me
Speaking of climate, money and risk
What are our chances of getting these eedjits declared as vexatious litigants?
Leaving aside those already mentioned, my year had these
Chvrches – Recover
Savages – She Will
Sleigh Bells’ Bitter Rivals
Volcano Choir,Rhye,Neko Case,Mt Kimbie
So much good music

If you're a real neophyte start with a bottle of Pigs Nose blended then work your way up to single malts
